Back of the Neck Pain is Debilitating
Back of the neck pain is debilitating more times than not. The mere fact that this pain causes discomfort makes simple movement a think before you attempt movement a reality. Even simple things like standing and sitting can cause grave concern. Forget a round of Golf or a few sets of Tennis with your friends, we are talking about the basic process of sitting or standing. Turning your head left, right, up, or down can be so painful that the simple thought of it begins to be stressful. If you have never experienced back of the neck pain, then this may sound a bit far-fetched. Let me assure you the discomfort and pain from this condition is as debilitating as described in this article.
What causes this painful condition where moving your neck in any direction is very painful?
The possible causes are almost too numerous to mention. However, here are a few obvious causes. 1) An auto accident where whiplash is involved. 2) A slip or fall where bumping your head or neck took place. 3) Sleeping in an unusual position. 4) A quick or sudden move of your head or neck. These possibilities are clearly ones which everyone understands. The effects of any one of the mentioned possibilities can produce a pinched nerve, bruised or torn neck muscles, and cracked neck vertebrae to name a few of these pain causing conditions.
